ANC6B Signs Off on Latest Frager’s Design – Photos – Plus Floor Plans for the Development
by Larry Janezich
Tuesday night, ANC6B approved Perseus Realty’s plan to redevelop the Frager’s site. The concept, (as reported on Capitol Hill Corner, here: http://bit.ly/1S8nVpF) is a by-right project with four stories and a two-unit penthouse. The design includes indoor trash storage, and 34 condos: twelve 2 bedroom units plus den, twelve 2 bedroom units (including the 2 penthouse units), four 1 bedroom plus den units, and six 1 bedroom units. There will be 36 below grade parking spaces, one for each condo and two for retail.
The ANC told the Historic Preservation Reserve Board that they would like the developer to consider a few design tweaks, including a setback on the upper floors on the west side of the building, a second look at the two new in-fills on the Pennsylvania Avenue side, less glass on the rear façade, and a second look at the modifying the design of the third story so as not to mimic the historic building.
With the exception of the addition of the last item, the ANC adhered to the recommendations as they came out of the Planning and Zoning Committee, chaired by Commissioner Nick Burger, which met on April 5, to consider the Historic Preservation Application.
The proposal will now go to the Historic Preservation Review Board, the staff of which has been working closely with the developer to move the project forward.
